I’m literally in the middle of eating this right now and I had to come on and review asap! I took everyones advice and went with the smoked ciabatta and it’s delicious but the coffee? Absolutely unreal and amazing!! I like my coffees super sweet and the lovely lady accommodated my tastes and it’s truly the best ice latte i’ve ever had in my life. I’ll definitely be popping back. It’s super affordable too!

Very kind & friendly owner

Went in for a coffee & was distracted by the pies. So I got a pie too. Then I got chatting to the owner about vegan food across Europe & he also offered me a taste of another pie and some raw vegan chocolate thing.

Pros: Very kind owner, Tasty food

Cons: Coffee wasn’t my favourite

The most amazing Vegan Sandwiches & Pies !

Anything you try in Bamboo Vegan will leave your mouth extra satisfied ! They have the most amazing sandwiches in Athens, super yummy pies, Mediterranean one is my favorite! While you can enjoy very tasty desserts, vegan “kormos” (cold dessert with chocolate and biscuits- Greek traditional fridge dessert) and of course the delicious cookies 🍪! Don’t miss their Friday night cocktail party, with special food/ cuisine of the day!

We came right at closing time but still got impeccable service

We arrived 2 min before closing time so the savoury goods had all sold out. My partner bought the filled choc chip cookie, but because I'm allergic to hazelnuts we decided to keep it at that. It looked incredible and my partner loved it! Because I couldn't share it with him, the super-friendly owner of the place gave me a small sweet to try out for free and he recommended some other places around the area too.

Edit: we went there a second time and got some delicious smoothies. The owner then gave us some log cake to try (some bits that had come off during cutting -- delicious!) and was really friendly and had lots of other helpful tips and recommendations for our travels

Great sandwiches

The new spot has no longer the variety of vegan packaged stuff to sale (so it's not a vegan mini market anymore but rather a place to pass by for coffee and a sandwich), but their pies and sandwiches are great!

They have just opened at their brand new location a week ago as shown on happy cow. The vibe is so lovely, and the sandwiches and pies are the best I’ve ever had. The flavours are so homely and aromatic it is just divine. The coffee is amazing! Could not recommend any more. And the prices are very affordable!

Hits the spot

Well I've been shopping and eating here for 10 years now, and thought it's about time I wrote a review! The atmosphere at Bamboo Vegan is always warm and friendly and people are made to feel welcome. There is a wide choice of food and drink covering all bases (from junk food to salads). This is my go-to stop for a protein hit when in Athens - their delicious sandwiches also contain things like seitan and soy in addition to the usual salady ingredients we vegans might encounter when travelling. And they all taste damn awesome!!

They're currently in the process of moving premises and will reopen with a new look. I'm sure the owners Fotis and Elisavet will create another vegan experience in Athens that is just as amazing. Looking forward to it!

Pros: Friendly, happy atmosphere, Food tasty and nutritious (or not, your choice 😆), Wide selection of food to choose from

yummy & affordable

This place was quick, tasty, and affordable. The staff were also very kind. There were a lot of options and a good vibe. More of a sandwich and coffee place, where the food is prepared already and in the cooler. Very tasty, a lot of alternatives are used.

Pros: lots of options, good vibe , affordable

Cons: lots of alternative meats (not a con for everyone)

Love it!

Bamboo Vegan is what veganism is about: delicious food, supporting animals, and wonderful people.

The owner and staff are very friendly, the pastries and pizza were delicious, and there are a variety of vegan options in the store from Greece as well as other corners of the world (like a Dr Pepper and a PBJ jar).

Don’t miss it during your stay in Athens!

Pros: Everything is vegan, Vegan cafe and groceries, Friendly staff

One-stop Vegan Shop

I have been going to Bamboo for a few years now and I am happy to see how they grew.

Besides the small shop with lots of goodies they sell tasty sandwiches, pastries and desserts which I believe are made in-house.

Try the vegan croissant or the cheesecake ! So delicious. 😋

Pros: Affordable prices, Food to go, Variety of products
